This was my very first year attending the 52nd Holly Day Fair at the Crown.
I was like WHOA.
In the parking lot.
Cause dude, it was madness! I didn’t know this was such a thing. But it really was.
Snagged a parking spot and skipped in the building to find the crown turned into a holiday shopping wonderland.
Vendors lined the entire place. I’m talking everything from woodworking to wine to Christmas ornaments. It was cool.
Honestly, I had so fun much hanging out with my friends and listening to the vendors stories about their businesses and products. It was such a social experience and I have a great appreciation for that.
I love love love supporting small businesses during the holidays.
Not only are you supporting someone’s dream and their family-but typically what you find at a small business is a lot cooler and more personable than a chain. I love finding unique gifts with a story to tell. Nobody wants another pair of socks, guys. Unless they’re cool like Proven by Ruben style. #letsbereal
While this Holly Day Fair wrapped up on Sunday, it’ll be back next year and I definitely think everyone should go check it out. It got me in the holiday spirit and I got to check out some businesses that I didn’t know about!The place was hoppin’ and I’m glad I tried something new this holiday season!
